Jasmine MacDonnell, the minister, sexy radioactive leaks, and a missing digital recorder

Posted on: June 9, 2009

I’m linking to the blog “Search for Liberty” written by Rob Harvie, a fellow I don’t know, but he must be okay as he’s from my old stomping grounds of Lethbridge, Alberta.
Here’s his comment on the issue of Jasmine MacDonnell, the former- she recently resigned- communications aide to Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt, who left her digital recorder in a bathroom for a reporter to find. The Halifax Chronicle Herald reporter, Stephen Maher, actually informed MacDonnell about her missing recorder and waited months for her to pick it up, then gave up and listened.
In one recording Raitt described Canada’s medical isotope shortage as “sexy”.
